Year 5/6 Diocesan Day

We have the opportunity to take our children in Years 5 and 6 to York Minster on Monday, 13th January, 2014.  The visit will give the children an opportunity to hear the stories of the disastrous fires of the 19th and 20th centuries, look at the stained glass windows and hear their stories and worship in the candlelit crypt.  They will learn how the Minster was built, dress in the vestments worn by the clergy and see the computer presentation about the Minster as a place of worship, and how their parish fits into the diocese and much more besides.

The children will be leaving school at 9.15 a.m. and will return to school by the end of the school day.  The cost of the visit is £9.37 per child, which covers the cost of the coach hire and resources.  We ask for a voluntary contribution of £6.00 with the balance being paid from school fund.

Children will need to wear their school uniform and bring a packed lunch (as usual, no cans, fizzy drinks or glass bottles please).  Children will need to bring a warm coat, as the Minster can be cold.

Please email permission for your child to take part in this educational visit to York Minster and send voluntary contributions into school in a named envelope.
